Spacious oceanfront home on 1 acre with 3 Bedrooms and 3 full Bathrooms.

Clayoquot Calm (Lic#20180590) is located on 1 acre of private, peaceful, oceanfront property that overlooks the stunning views of Browning Passage in Clayoquot Sound. This custom designed 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, one level, spacious home easily accommodates families and groups who enjoy vacationing together and is accessible to those with mobility issues. Ideally located within walking distance (1km) from the village of Tofino and within 5km of world-renowned surfing beaches like Chesterman Beach, Cox Bay and Long Beach, Clayoquot Calm is perfect for those seeking an idyllic west coast experience.

From the instant you walk in the door, our uniquely designed home welcomes you with breath taking waterfront views of Browning Passage from the living room, dining room as well as the master bedroom. Once inside, the open floor plan leads you through the living room with a wood-burning fireplace into the gourmet style kitchen. Off the kitchen, through beautiful, double patina fir doors, you find a games room that offers a fully equipped pool table and a large indoor sauna completely finished in cedar.

To enjoy the awe inspiring views outdoors, step out the glass French doors, between the dining and living rooms, onto the large concrete patio. Once there, have a seat in a handmade cedar chair to take in the amazing view while you deep breathe the fresh west coast air.

From the covered portion of this extensive patio, a 5 person hot tub, easily accessed from the living room, or master bedroom and ensuite, offers "apres-surf" or evening relaxation -- yet another soothing, relaxing venue from which to drink in the intoxicating phenomena that is the west coast.

Once you experience the rejuvenating magic of this idyllic retreat that is Clayoquot Calm, two things are certain: you will want to extend your stay and you will definitely need to return!!

Why Phil and Louise chose Tofino

Clayoquot Calm offers one of the best views of Browning Passage, especially from the serene stone beach that is easily accessed from the lawn. One could spend all day from the beach, the patio or, if too rainy, from the cozy living room couch, watching the changing tides expose and blanket the vast expanse of mud flats -- an everchanging landscape! The Browning Passage side of the peninsula offers panoramic breathtaking views without the rigour of the west side. At Clayoquot Calm one can enjoy the serenity and grandeur of the west coast or, within minutes, experience the wild, intensity of the open ocean --- truly the best this area has to offer!

What makes this House unique

Clayoquot Calm was custom crafted by a skilled tradesman who created an idyllic retreat that offers as much inside, with all the amenities, as outside. We were smitten the minute we walked in the front door from where we could see the intoxicating view through the massive windows on the opposite side of the house. Very open and spacious with fourteen foot ceilings in the great and games rooms and nine foot in the rest of the house, this rancher style home is finished with fir cabinets, doors and heated concrete floors that give it very comfortable and cozy feel. The design of the ceilings offers amazing acoustics -- even the radio sounds incredible! Clayoquot Calm, a peaceful oasis, crafted out of and within the magical west coast, is thoroughly enjoyed any time of the year, no matter the weather.

                                                                    We had a lovely stay. Beds were comfortable and rooms were spacious. Kitchen and dinningroom were a great entertaining space ! The games room was well used. The only negative things were the instructions to sauna didn’t make sense, we could not get it going. The other thing was the toilet in the master suite had to be shut off manual after using cause it would just keep running. I would recommend this too my friends and family. We will defiantly stay there again.

                                                                    Gorgeous cabin on a beautiful bay

                                                                    We loved our vacation at this cabin. The home is beautiful, comfortable, clean, and provided many amenities that enhanced our vacation experience. The covered patio made it comfortable to eat outside and hot tub despite some cool and stormy weather. We loved the view of the inlet from the kitchen and we enjoyed skipping rocks on the calm water during the sunset hours. We are a family of 5 and the cabin accommodated our family perfectly. We enjoyed the pool table and sauna too. It was the perfect place to return home to after some fabulous hikes and beach adventures in Tofino. Such a magical experience! This cabin is in a great location just outside of town but conveniently located near many great beaches. The owners are attentive and pleasant. We would love to return here in the future!

                                                                    It is wonderful to hear that your family and friends enjoyed a holiday weekend together in our home!

                                                                    We hope to be fortunate enough to host you for another holiday in Tofino.

                                                                    We will be back!

                                                                    Jim and Anne B.

                                                                    What a beautiful home away from home! Loved the view of the flats as the tide went out as the sun rose as the boats motored by as the mountains reflected on the calm water as we relaxed in the hot tub. We were ready for a glorious day at the beach.

                                                                    Absolutely everything is in place from fully stocked kitchen cupboards to cupboards full of board games and a games room complete with a pool table. Following days on the beach, we returned "home" to a relaxing hot tub and then fired up the BBQ for an evening meal. Many thanks for sharing this paradise with us! We will be back!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    What you see is what you get!!

                                                                    We took our 6 adult children for 4 glorious days. What a nice treat to have the hot tub and sauna after a day paddle or hike. All beds were very comfy and bedding of good quality , in floor heating was great. We really enjoyed the pool table ( a chalk board would be an asset)

                                                                    The privacy of the home was appreciated too.

                                                                    PS: We did NOT find the floors slippery?

                                                                    The only thing that could make it better was if it was pet friendly, and if check out was alittle later, like 1:00pm.

                                                                    Thank you, Phil and Louise

                                                                    It sounds like your family had a fantastic Tofino experience and thoroughly enjoyed all that our amenities and property have to offer!

                                                                    Thank you for the helpful feedback. A chalk board would be a great addition to the games room. As we know how difficult it is to leave this amazing place, we don't have any flexibility with check out time:( The cleaning staff truly needs the time to prepare the house and amenities for the next guests.

                                                                    A fully paved multi-use path (affectionately known as MUP) runs right across the end of our driveway. This securely separated path parallels the main highway and provides walkers, cyclists, joggers a safe avenue to travel into town (about 5 min on bicycle) or to the beaches and other attractions -- my personal favorite, Chocolate Tofino!

A refundable damage deposit of $200 per stay is also applied to all bookings. Our minimum stay is 3 nights unless there is 2 night space to fill. This is a pet free home.
